Katherine Du
A sophomore at Jefferson, Katherine is in her second year of working on the newsmagazine staff. As a Team Leader, she reports for the tjTODAY website and magazine publication, designs pages in the magazine, and guides new staffers in creating content. Katherine joined tjTODAY because she found it to be a way in staying involved with the TJ community while bringing out the unique qualities and candid reactions of fellow students. She first became involved in journalism when writing news for her middle school paper. Outside of journalism, Katherine is a member of the Science Olympiad team. She is also a lead facilitator for Kid's Are Scientists Too (KAST), a program dedicated to teaching STEM-based concepts to elementary school students. After high school, Katherine would like to pursue a career in neurobiology, as well as travel the world.
